Bioengineer named to the Tenth Annual 50 Most Important African-Americans in Technology list
San Fransisco, California and Cambridge, Mass. - December 9, 2009 - Debra Auguste, Assistant Professor of Biomedical Engineering at the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS), has been named to the Tenth Annual 50 Most Important African-Americans in Technology list.
"The honorees are each an example of the critically important role of African-American innovators, educators, policymakers and executives to shape the future of the global economy,” said John William Templeton, president/executive editor of San Francisco-based eAccess Corp., which has produced the list since 1999. “During a transformational national administration, they represent the role models to propel new generations into the careers of the future.”
Auguste and her other Honorees will gather for a 10th anniversary symposium in San Francisco on Jan. 15, 2010 to design an innovation and equity agenda for the nation.
